Yes, good point and all correct.  The real question I have is what
exactly that sed is supposed to accomplish.  All it does is make
/dev/rtc belong to audio group, but it doesn't change the permissions
from 0644 on the node.  In other words, it doesn't actually *do* 
anything useful at all.  Therefore, I'm going to remove that part 
from the doinst.sh in my branch.  If the maintainer thinks something
else is supposed to happen there, then that fix will need to happen
in an updated submission.
